77059: Orc Berserker (Two Handed Sword) (Bones)

I finally got to painting my Bones Orc Berserker, by Tre Manor. It was one of the first Bones I purchased, an awesome sculpt.

 

I didn't get him nearly as green as has been my tendency with previous orcs. Was aiming for some more bluish black. In other news, my first use of a Secret Weapon wash is here: I used Baby Poop (lol) on the dark armor. Again, having trouble with the photos. I went back and took the last couple shots here after; I think maybe they give a better representation of how he looks in person.

Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome. Still trying to get better!

I love Tre's orcs. You are improving with each figure. Keep up the good work!  ^_^

 

I'll echo ub3r_n3rd: Contrast is important at the scale we tend to work at. Push the highlights. For most metallics, for example, I like to add a bit of silver at the highest edges.

Thanks, y'all. You are both very correct, of course, and I already know it. I backed off with my highlights because I couldn't figure out how to handle his skin. Cowered out lol.

 

What I do is add yellow a little bit at a time to the green to lighten it up and just hit those areas that would see the light, tops of muscles and top of head.

I guess that'd make sense. It's what I was doing with my goblins. That's where I got scared with this guy, though--he's not very green at all in person, looks more blue, and I was wasn't sure what the yellow would do. Well, I guess green it, really.

 

I don't know why I sweated it, honestly. I may go back and try it yet.

Never be afraid to take chances Marvin, that's half the fun. Be a mad scientist, mix colors, experiment, and have fun. What's the worst that can happen? You give them a long relaxing bath in simple green and try again another time if you hate what you did.

My beef is more with the green tunic that looks almost the same as the green skin.

 

And like in your troll claws, the orc's teeth would need a little yellowing. Unless he *really* loves broccoli.

 

The orcs are really a good choice for practice/experimental painting, especially for Vampire Bones backers because there a ton of them.
